Hi everyone -- it's taken me a bit to introduce myself but here I am! I got my Kindle a little over a week ago and it already has become omnipresent in my life. Scary but true. The tiny size tucks in my purse, gymbag, under my arm, inside my jacket...you name it. The skinniness is what makes that possible -- because obviously, one could do the same with a paperback.
Last fall, I heard a lecture on emerging technologies by Paul Saffo (www.saffo.com
) who referenced the Kindle as one of the most important technologies to arrive on the scene. Revolutionary to the written word, like the iPod has been to music. It peaked my interest and when the Kindle2 was available again this spring, I jumped at it.
Thanks for having this board available for sharing!
